I recently learnt how to bind books from a youtube video using the coptic binding, since then I've been playing with different kinds of covers and these are the results!









I think I like the magazine covers best because they are so easy to do and the covers are perfectly designed to deal with everything that a book has to deal with.

I used this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHAJyzzb4EE

I paused the video and made my first book at the same time as he did - it's a really helpful video and I hope you guys find it useful too Smiley
